Atelier Penny James

Steeped In Tradition

It began with a desire to step away from the digital world and engage in crafting and creating something tangible. This journey led to the art of traditional French leathercraft. Distinct from others, French leatherwork embodies a rich heritage that spans centuries, exuding an intricate attention to detail and superior quality. It’s this dedication to excellence and the nuances of age-old techniques that inform everything we do. 


Commitment to Quality

Every piece we produce is meticulously handcrafted using only the finest leathers and materials, highlighting our dedication to quality that is not just aesthetically superior but also enduring.

Admiration for Legacy

We champion the preservation of traditional techniques and artisanal values, weaving a narrative of dedication and legacy in every stitch.


In a world of mass production and fleeting trends, Penny James stands as a testament to the enduring worth of authenticity, making each piece stand out as one-of-a-kind.
